Part 1- Starting from Portola Dr. at the south end of Twin Peaks Blvd.
Rec/Park is considering improving the connector route between Twin Peaks Park and Mount Sutro’s Clarendon trail.
They feel they should have an alternate route round the reservoir instead of using the Sutro Tower trail due to possible liability as the latter area is privately owned.
We’ll see what happens. This time I didn’t use either, but just used the sidewalk to cross over to La Avanzada from Palo Alto’s dead-end for vehicles.
First over to Portola Dr. and up the trail on the right side of Twin Peaks Blvd. for the first section: 1 thru 11
Second block up features the new stairway: 12 thru 25
Third block up the southside is still a curving trail with only four older wood steps at the top just before the guardrail: 26 thru 35
Nearby, to the west, is the south Noe peak stairway.
East side of Twin Peaks Blvd. that’s now closed to motor vehicles and super-popular with skateboarders: 36 thru 52
The south Eureka peak stairway can be seen ahead as you curve around to the viewplace.
Stopping here. Next post is Part 2, starting with my arrival at Twin Peaks’ main view area, continuing to the westside recently widened trail, then down the Marview connector trail (Midtown Terrace) and over to Mount Sutro.
